    This is a video of a Korean bomb pizza, a pizza hidden in a giant dough bubble which is doused in oil and set on fire at the table. Then the bubble is removed with a pair of scissors and the pizza cut into slices. I'm pretty sure the fire is more for show than actual cooking... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy melting a lock off with a torch. It is very effective and only takes about a minute until the lock just falls right off. Now I'm going to have to superglue firecrackers to my lock so I'll know if anybody is trying to torch it. *tapping head* I'm a t... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy melting Styrofoam cups in a plate of acetone. He even draws a smiley face on one so you feel bad for it. I did not feel bad for it. Again, this is another one of those times where I really wish you could smell Youtube videos. Acetone already smells ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy melting pennies in less than a minute with the help of the sun and a Fresnel lens. I want to put my hand in front of it. The sun: it is powerful. Back me up, Icarus. "I hate that thing." Ahahahhahahaha, you dummy. You should have listened to your ... / Continue →

    This is the Biem Butter Sprayer, a relatively large handheld device that melts the end of a stick of butter and sprays it as needed, presumably right into my mouth like spray cheese because I'm a disgusting animal. You ever rubbed melted butter on a lover before? Me neither b... / Continue →

    This is a video of the ice sword that Allen Pan made. Allen made the sword using Pykrete, a frozen composition of approximately 86% water and 14% saw dust or wood pulp (in this case toilet paper). Pykrete is much stronger than ice and is actually more similar to concrete. So... / Continue →

    This is a video of that guy who pours molten copper into everything he can find pouring molten copper into antifreeze. While I admire the Backyard Scientist's artistic approach to pouring molten aluminum, this guy seems to prefer doing his copper pouring all willy-nilly. 'Shi... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber and molten copper lover Tito4re pouring his favorite liquid metal into a hole in the top of a coconut. What happens? SPOILER: Not a piña colada. The coconut is so well insulated that the copper boils all the coconut water in there and starts cooki... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Backyard Scientist demonstrating the shapes made when you pour molten aluminum into an aquarium full of water polymer beads. You know, in case you were considering pouring molten aluminum into an aquarium full of water polymer beads but didn't want to ... / Continue →

    This is the Hatching Dinosaur Candle available from Firebox. It costs $45 *spit-takes Sunny D* and reveals a porcelain baby raptor as it melts. Plus Firebox points out you get to keep the baby dinosaur after the candle is finished, just in case you thought it was just on loan... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel being placed on a Nokia 3310 brick phone. It catches fire immediately, presumably because there was no SIM card installed. You gotta install that SIM card. I actually used to have one of those phones. I dropped it so many times an... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red-hot ball of nickel melting a block of floral foam. For those of you who didn't take a floral design course in college with your then-girlfriend, floral foam is a block of green absorbent foam you use to make flower arrangements so the cut stems can sti... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel trying to melt its way through a vulcanized rubber hockey puck. In a surprising turn of events (at least for me), the red hot ball of nickel hardly did any damage to the puck (not unlike the red hot ball of nickel vs Nickelodeon GaK)... / Continue →

    This is a video of TheBackyardScientist pouring molten aluminum into a giant lava lamp to see what happens (previously: a watermelon). Just to see what happens is arguably the number one reason for the science experiments I see performed on Youtube. No scientific method, no c... / Continue →

    Because some people get their rocks off by watching balls of red-hot nickel melt through things (previously: an ice block and peanut butter), this is a video of a ball of nickel melting its way through a Rubik's Cube. I'm not sure what the video was supposed to teach us, but I... / Continue →

    This is a how-to video created by Youtuber Grant Thompson - "The King of Random" of how to melt aluminum soda cans, make them into metal biscuits, then recast them into something else (in this case, a sword). Pretty cool. You know what would be even cooler? Melting a soda ca... / Continue →

    This is a small series of Perler bead characters that have been brought to life by Daniel Alba. I wish I had a little Link around to help cut fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables, LOL. I spend zero time in the produce section of the grocery store. You know why? "Be... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch... / Continue →

    I posted about turning a loved one's ashes (or anyone you want to dig up and burn, really) into a diamond back in 2009, so this isn't really a new concept. But death diamonds can cost up to $20K, where as dead body beads will only set you back $870, making them the obvious cho... / Continue →

    There comes a time in every young man's life when he receives his first soldering iron. To me, that day feels like it was just yesterday. "That was yesterday -- you f***ing stole it out of my toolbox." Haha -- finders keepers! About 1983, when I was fifteen, I dropped my ... / Continue →
